Ramos Pinto Duas Quintas is Douro red wine blend. The "two quintas" in question are Quinta de Ervamoira and Quinta dos Bons Ares. Quinta de Ervamoira is located in the heart of the Douro, in schist soil and at low altitude and the climate is hot and dry which allows the grapes to fully mature. At Quinta dos Bons Ares, which has a granite soil and is at a higher altitude, the grapes mature in fresher, windy conditions which lends them freshness and vivacity. Through careful blending the "Duas Quintas" is a unique, fruity, strong and complex wine. This is a blend of 40% Touriga Franca, 40% Tinta Roriz and 20% Touriga Nacional. Following malolactic fermentation in vats, 20% of the wine is aged in French oak barrels and the rest remains in stainless steel vats. The wine is bottled 18 months later.
